With millions stuck at home with nowhere to go and nothing to do, Netflix had their best quarter in company history, with 16 million new subscribers signing up for the service.
As more Americans sign up for streaming video on demand (SVOD) services and cut the cord from cable, the number of streaming services available for families to watch will only increase.
With services like Netflix and Hulu not having to worry about following FCC content rules like broadcast TV networks including ABC and CBS, the new original TV shows available for streaming from online providers are becoming increasingly sexually explicit and vulgar with traditional family values not promoted or ridiculed.
The good news is that now thanks to the internet, families can spend their hard-earned money on services that do share their values.
Some options for families include PureFlix, Up Faith and Family, and Yippee, a new streaming service for kids and families from TBN television networks.
While these services cannot match the production values of Netflix, a company with a billion-dollar production budget, these and other streaming subscription services are good options for families that are sick of spending their money on services that do not support their values.
With so much media in existence today, just policing what media content your children are consuming must be a full-time job for parents.
As streaming continues to gain popularity and technology improves, families in the next few years will have even more options for entertainment.
However, it’s going to be up to the content producers to make quality content that is worth subscribing to because Netflix has set the production bar really high.
In a streaming world full of Tiger King, the need for quality and entertaining content about the King of Kings has never been higher.
